I've Eaten Only Mac & Cheese for the Past 17 Years, Here's Why

For most people, eating nothing but mac and cheese seems like a childhood fantasy. But for 20-year-old Austin Davis, who has been eating nothing but mac and cheese for the past 17 years, it’s not a fantasy -- it’s his reality and has become his affliction. For Austin, it’s about much more than just “liking” mac and cheese. Austin suffers from Selective Eating Disorder, also known as Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, an anxiety disorder that’s characterized by the persistent refusal to eat specific foods or refusal to eat any type of food due to a negative response from certain sensory characteristics of that food.
VICE travels to Florida to meet Austin to learn more about the origins of his eating disorder and join him as he embarks on his journey towards recovery.

This video turned out amazing guys! I really appreciate all you guys did for me. Lots of people in the comments confused or concerned. I appreciate all of the positive comments and all the negative ones are just too funny. For anyone interested, since this video was filmed I've lost a ton of weight, down to about 188 now (I was 245 when this was filmed) nothing but pasta makes it difficult but I'm getting there! Working with Ashley has been amazing. Keep making great stuff guys!

have you tried making your own pasta? It's sort of fun to do. Perhaps give it a try and not focus on eating it at first.

Personally I relate to the gamer lifestyle and watching him sit at his PC to eat has convinced me to never do it again. Also I learned that even people who eat only chicken tendies as their diet have a type of eating disorder, so this rings true - it's something built up so big in his head that he physically vomits with anything else. He needs real support and therapy to help this from taking over his entire life.

People of the comment section, it’s in your best interest to just watch the video, you will realize that this kid is much less of a meme and way more a kid who is dealing with some significant past trauma the best way he can. Also, he’s like the first comment in this thing, he’s eating healthier and has lost a bunch of weight!

this is a perfect example of bad parenting its like the really fat kids that eat nothing but McDonald's and their parents continue to get it for them and it's usually the mom's fault to oh that's what my baby wants to eat three double cheeseburgers french fries and a milkshake and he says we never really ate family meals it's lazy parenting 101 you see this every day from people rather give their kid what they want say Mommy I want chicken nuggets or Mommy I want Velveeta Shells a lot easier to give them what they want then listen to them wine and throw a temper tantrum and now since everybody has to be such a politically correct pussy and most i we don't believe in hitting r kids
